    This page of the installer will display several fields to fill in information
    about your database. Fill them in and click submit and it will create the
    settings.php file in the above directory.

//Global db settings
$db = array();

//Function to display the needed fields for config file
function config_form ($server,$db,$user,$pass) {
  echo "  <p>
                <p>Please fill out the following fields so that we can create your settings file.</p>

                <p>Note: If your hosting company requires you to create the database through
                their web interface you can create it, and then fill in the settings here. If the database
                does not exist already we will try to create it during the installer.</p>
